Apparently something’s in the water at Coachella (and perhaps whatever it is could explain the … shall we say, unique … outfits we see on celebrities in attendance). There must be something about dancing in the desert wearing feathers and boots without socks that makes you want to lighten up your hair a shade or two (or ten, in the case of Vanessa Hudgens and Kylie Jenner).

Joining those two recently-blonde starlets is Sarah Hyland, who updated her ombré locks (most recently seen topped by a floral crown) with an allover wash of honey-blonde color. Though the beaded headdress and facial jewelry are a bit distracting, once you look past them, you can see that she’s lightened her locks from root to tips (unlike Vanessa and Kylie, who went for a more contrasting brunette-to-blonde fade). Her highlights range from platinum to sand throughout.

We can’t imagine this is a permanent look (unless we’re going to see her Modern Family character going through a rebellious phase sometime soon) but we actually like her as a blonde for the time being. How are you feeling about her do update? Thoughts on all these girls at Coachella lightening up?

Not a good look for her!

She looks like she’s sick again with the blonde. It washes her out in the worst way.

Join the club, kid? That’s condescending, seeing as how she is 23. Sorry, People, that she didn’t ask your permission to dye her hair.

i dont want to join the ‘mean clan’ that often appears on boards like this, but… Sarah you dont look well..and i think the bleached hair only emphasizes that youre not feeling your best

Jake Dodds on

So Meta, what do you think it is? I don’t follow her that much but I do watch the show. I don’t she think looks well in either picture.

Pal on

The color doesn’t suit to her.

David on

If it’s not broke, why fix it?

taelpe on

Don’t care for it, it makes her look old. By the expression on her face I don’t think she cares for it too much either.

Hardly blonde. Not to mention a stupid story.
How about you write an article/story about the Boston Marathon bombing victims about “where they are now” or something. One year ago today, the city i live in was effected. Tremendously. There is way more going on in the world to worry about what some actress decided to color her fricking hair.
